Every year we organise events, the aim of which is to spread the word about YBUK and build partnerships with construction industry businesses, colleges and charities.
The main message of our events is that encouraging and supporting disadvantaged and disengaged young people into construction not only transforms their lives, but also helps to strengthen the industry.
Our Building Pathways and Patrons’ events enable us to speak directly with construction businesses, organisations and individuals. The events showcase what we do and highlight the benefits of supporting, training and mentoring disaffected young people interested in construction.
Our events are also a great forum for the exchange of ideas about the industry and discussing best practice, as well as for networking and relationship building.
We celebrate the achievements of the young people that we help at our events, with the highlight being the annual Young Builder of the Year Awards.
